Photo Gallery: What 70 (and 80) Looks Like

These people over 70 tell you why they're happy in their own skin

Sue Porter Isaacson, 70

Spring Hill, Florida
Sales Associate

Cancer has been a blessing. I go to the clinic for chemo and everyone has this gloomy look, so I bring them out of the fear factor. They think they'll be dead tomorrow. They won't. I was told I have Stage 4, and I've been in remission for three months! I have miracles every day. I try daily, no matter how I feel, to look as good as I can, because when you look better, you feel better. I put on makeup. I've lost half my eyelashes. My hair is falling out. My nose is too big. It occurred to me in the past to have a nose job, but at this point, I'm at such peace with myself that my nose is just fine.
